Read on to discover the fight time, full card and your best Julio Cesar Chavez Sr vs Hector Camacho Jr live stream options to watch this intriguing bout - as well as Anderson Silva and the rest - around the globe.
This intriguing exhibition fight is the main supporting bout on a bill dubbed "Tribute to the Kings" that is headlined by MMA star Anderson Silva returning to boxing to fight Chavez's son Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. The bill meanwhile also features Canelo's brother Ramon Alvarez facing another Chavez, Omar, in a middleweight battle.
But the main attraction surely has to be 42-year-old Hector Camacho Jr looking to make amends for his legendary New York brawler father, Hector “Macho” Camacho who lost to Chavez Sr on points in all-time classic fight back in September 1992 in fight that saw him relinquish his WBO Light Welterweight belt.
Famed for his lightening quick hands, Camacho senior was a world champion at super featherweight, lightweight and junior welterweight, defeating the likes of Roberto Durán and Sugar Ray Leonard, but was tragically murdered in 2012.
His defeat to Chavez Sr was one of the few blemishes on a golden career, but there was no shame in losing to a fighter evocatively nicknamed the God of fists from Culiacan.
The 58-year-old Mexican Hall of Fame inductee Chavez Sr was also a champ at three divisions (super featherweight, lightweight and light welterweight) and holds the record for most title fight victories of any boxer (31).
